Making a new thread for this to avoid clogging up the GTS Research thread with questions specific to IR-GTS-BW.
Download available here. Note that IR-GTS-BW is a separate release from the GenIV version, and is currently on version 0.05, rather than 0.43.
-Japanese character support is currently unavailable - haven't been able to test what happens when you try to send a Pokemon with a Japanese nickname/OT just yet.Added a placeholder in lieu of proper Japanese character support in v0.02.
-GenIII and GenIV Pokemon files are currently unsupported.
For a list of common errors and possible solutions, see http://code.google.com/p/ir-gts/wiki/CommonIssues
Several people have been connecting to the actual GTS, despite inputting the DNS settings correctly into the DS. I'm not yet sure what is causing this, but am looking into it. Make sure the DNS settings that IR-GTS tells you to use are entered into the primary DNS slot on the DS. If you are using a USB device to connect your DS to the internet, try setting your computer's DNS to 127.0.0.1. Otherwise, try deleting all other connections in the DS settings, as it may be accessing a different network than the one IR-GTS is running on.
Also make sure that your firewall is set to allow Python. If you run into problems not covered here, let me know when it failed (e.g. after first entering the GTS room), which function you were trying to use (send/receive), the OS on your computer, and what error you're getting - preferably from Python (run from a command prompt if the window closes before you can get an error message). Also, if you're trying to send a pkm when you get the error, it'd help if you could post that as well.
NOTE: Read the Readme before asking for help. Otherwise, your request will be ignored.
Thanks, and enjoy!
v0.01: Initial Release
v0.02: Japanese text placeholder. Now uses the PID as the nickname, and 'TRAINER' for the OT. Now removes quotation marks at the beginning and end of the filename, to make dragging and dropping easier.
v0.03: Statlog.txt now reports the correct Nature. Also reordered the IV/EV output.
v0.04: Fixed the stats generated for a 136-byte pkm file, which were broken by the previous release.
v0.05: Shows the filesize of invalid files, and detects Dream World abilities.

IR, as soon as I begin connecting to N WFC there is a long delay and I get "communication error, please turn off power". I believe I have entered everything correctly, and my .pkm file is fine (220 B). I think I also did everything in the cmd correctly because it says "Ready to Send..."
it says to change my DNS to 192.168.1.3, I changed both primary and secondary to 192.168.001.003 because the former will not go through. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
Oi! Infinite Recursion, Thanks for putting your time, effort, and energy into this project. Thank you very much. Everything is working perfectly for me but Dragging and Dropping .pkm files into the window. Any suggestions?
My firewall is off... I know (or am fairly sure) that the DNS is correct because when I tried earlier and tested connection, it failed. With the DNS I put in the Test Connection is successful, but once i try to enter the GTS I get the error and am asked to turn off power
I have been, was just wondering if anyone knew of a way to correct this issue is all =). Thanks for the hasty response Donmoosavi =)
Additional oddity: The GTS Negotiations system works perfectly despite the changed DNS. So the above issue only arises when I try to connect to the actual GTS from the menu (IR-GTS)
I realize this is definitely a problem at my end but IR do you have any clue what's up? Firewalls are down, and sendpkm for HG/SS is working without a hitch
I'm having a hard time even installing python. Any help? I downloaded 2.6, but don't see any program I can open to run this.
here. After that, you can just follow the instructions in the readme to get IR-GTS-BW to work.
Hm... I can't seem to change the DNS settings. The program (it's the bw one) told me to make my DNS 10.0.1.13,so I did, but when I try to test connection, it will get green bars, then they'll disappear after a little bit and I get error 52102 saying that it can't connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. I know the settings are correct and I turned off firewall like someone else said. Do you know what the problem is?
That shouldn't be an issue, considering that I had no trouble after changing the DNS server once, and I'm getting the same error when I try to access the GTS as I do in Test Connection, resulting in the whole thing not working.
EDIT: What I'm saying then is that even though I changed the DNS settings, it's still trying to connect to NWFC and is failing at it.
Also, when I just tried making the DNS server 18.104.22.168 (the zorua one), it worked with no problems. If it matters, I haven't changed anything with my router's settings (does it have a separate firewall that needs to be taken off instead?), but it's an Airport extreme and I'm using a guest setting since that way I can connect without using a WPA code. I turned on a setting to let the guest network communicate with this one, but it didn't help...
Alright, I'm having a hard time getting this to run in Mac OS X. Here's what I've done:
-downloaded the IR-GTS folder
-downloaded and installed Python 2.7.1
But here's where things are going wrong. If I just double-click it to open it (as instructed in the readme), it opens up IDLE (along with a Python Shell), where it shows up like so:
And if I use the right-click to directly open it with Python, it just opens up a Terminal window with only the usual "Ver. XXX *name*'s Computer$" stuff.
I'm probably derping big-time here, so I apologize in advance for my idiocy (I'll be blunt and admit that I'm completely new to Python). Anyway, I'd love it if someone could help me.
